This home white air-knit gamer by Nike was worn by Murray Craven during the 1997-98 NHL season. The Detroit Red Wings selected Craven in the 1st round of the 1982 NHL Entry Draft. After spending 2 partial seasons with the Red Wings, Craven joined the Philadelphia Flyers in 1984-85 where he would spend the next 8 years of an 18-year NHL career. Craven partook in 1071 games during his career where he scored 759 points and was a 30-goal man for the Flyers. Murray prospered during the “Keenen Era” in Philadelphia as he and his teammates went to 2 Stanley Cup Finals in a 3-year span from 1985-87. Craven also made a run to the Cup Finals with the Vancouver Canucks in 1994. In addition to his time with the Flyers and Cancuks, Craven represented the Hartford Whalers, Chicago Blackhawks and San Jose Sharks where he spent 3 seasons before announcing his retirement in 2000.

The game wear on this size 52 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, fine inner pilling an no less than a half-dozen team-sewn repairs. Removed by the team from the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Craven wearing this exact jersey during the 1997-98 season. A well-worn photo matched example from Craven’s first season playing in the Shark Tank. This jersey will be accompanied by a Sharks team letter.
